Who We Are

Benetech was founded to be a different kind of tech company—a nonprofit—with a pure focus on developing technology for social good. But we also pride ourselves on being a different kind of nonprofit—one with an approach that draws its inspiration from successful Silicon Valley businesses.

To strike the right balance, we’ve assembled a unique team of tech leaders, nonprofit social enterprise change makers, and experts in the fields of human rights, technology, education, and the environment. Our team is committed to bringing the power of technology to bear on today’s most pressing social needs and ensuring that those who would benefit most from technology have access to it.
